 Nobel prize was incentive in Colombia peace: Santos

OSLO, Dec 9, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 09th Dec, 2016 ) - Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos on Friday said the Nobel Peace Prize was a "gift from heaven" and gave a "tremendous push" to reach a new agreement with FARC rebels.
